Camilla Belle In French Connection – ‘Extra’ With Mario Lopez

As far as Camilla Belle was concerned it was mission accomplished when it came to her Jason Wu look at the “From Prada to Nada” LA Premiere, because everyone was talking about it yesterday.

In West Hollywood, California yesterday she was spotted making an appearance on Extra with Mario Lopez.

Her look was more demure on this occasion, as she opted for a cream French Connection ruffled top with ribbed detailing which she paired with a black pencil skirt which tied at the waist.

I love the whole simple look. Not a hint of try hard.

Black ballet pumps, Ralph Lauren Cat Eye sunglasses and silver bracelets completed her look.

It’s good to see her out and about promoting her movie.

Brittany Snow In French Connection & Sophia Bush In Oliver Tolentino – Audi And J. Mendel Celebrate The 2011 Golden Globe Awards

At the Audi and J. Mendel celebrations for Golden Globes Week 2011 in LA last night, Brittany Snow and Sophia Bush wore looks by other designers.

Brittany continues to sport affordable fashion on the red carpet.

On this occasion she wore a French Connection glitter dress which reminds me of look 24 from the Givenchy Spring 2010 collection.

Her favourite nude open-toe pumps and an elegant updo completed her look.

A worthy BDOTW contender. Do you agree?

Sophia Bush opted for a cream Oliver Tolentino dress which is overly fussy around the neckline.

I normally love anything that Sophia wears, but I’m not crazy about her look on this occasion.

Manolo Blahnik blue satin heels (as worn in Sex And The City), Neil Lane jewels and a Judith Leiber clutch completed her look.

Sidewalk Style – Emma Watson In French Connection

I’m still in love with Emma Watson’s cute pixie cut.

The actress who’s People Tree Fall 2010 ads were shot before her new haircut, was spotted out in rainy cold London last night.

She left Bungalow 8 after going out with friends before headed out for dinner at Mexican restaurant Cafe Pacifico in Covent Garden.

Despite her cardigan being buttoned incorrectly she still looks so adorable wearing a French Connection ‘Meadow’ jersey dress which is the perfect summery dress.

She wisely adds jeans and comfortable flats to her look because lets face it, summer is well and truly over in London.

Givenchy vs. French Connection

Whilst on my lunch break yesterday I walked past French Connection on Oxford Street in London and saw a dress in the window which immediately made me think of a similar dress from the Givenchy Spring 2010 collection.

It a similar colour, it drapes the same way and they both have embellished shoulders.

The difference of course will be the price.

French Connection sell their version for £110, whilst the Givenchy dress no doubt cost thousands.

Who Wore French Connection Better? Katherine Jenkins, Stacey Dash or Olivia Munn

Welsh singer Katherine Jenkins first wore this French Connection sequin dress back in October to the “Woman Of The Year Lunch” and I must say I’m not a massive fan.

What is with that messy bouffant and black ribbon? Sack the hair stylist!

I don’t think this particular dress is a great length on Katherine either.

We next saw this dress on Stacey Dash in November who sneaked past security to attend the “Jimmy Choo for H&M” launch party in LA.

She’s got great legs and this dress really does them justice.

I would have liked to see her hair worn up (not a la Katherine though!)

I don’t think this dress needs accessories and the necklace adds nothing to the look.

The shoes don’t really work for me either.

Olivia Munn was the most recent celeb to wear this on the red carpet during the “Up In The Air” premiere in LA.

I love what she’s done with dress.

I wouldn’t have thought a nude shoe would work here but somehow it does.

I like that her hair is pulled back and the make up is subtle.

For me it’s a no brainer – Olivia rocks this sequin dress the best.

You can buy this dress in blue or black from the French Connection website.
